An Uncomplicated Life Blog: Shop Products I Love

Shop Products I Love

There are products that are consistently found on this blog, either in my tutorials, recipes, or thoughts and ideas I share. These products are always in my home and used regularly. I stand by all of these products and brands and highly recommend them to you to incorporate as staples in your own home!

DIY BEAUTY RECOMMENDATIONS
This brand of coconut oil is my go to! I've made an acne clearing face wash, and a peppermint foot scrub. Coconut oil is great for DIY beauty products (and you know exactly what's in them, unlike over the counter brands)!

An alcohol-free witch hazel is another DIY beauty product staple and that one is, hands down, the best brand I've found. It's used in my acne clearing and brightening skin toner and my DIY bug spray that's deet free but every bit as effective as a store brought brand.

Of course if you're going to make any of my DIY beauty products, you need containers. These glass jars are what I use for anything involving coconut oil, and these glass bottles are great for all the liquids.

This is BY FAR the best all natural deodorant I've ever used. It actually works. My husband even switched to it, and I've gotten all my friends on it too. Ditch the conventional brands that have so many chemicals you can't pronounce and go with a natural brand that works!


FOOD & COOKING STAPLES
Crock Pots can be a lifesaver for busy people. I recently upgraded to this model and I only wish I had done it sooner! The timer function is fantastic and the lid will seal tight so if you need to carry your dish somewhere, it won't spill. Genius. Wondering what to make? Try making your own condensed "cream of" soup so you don't need to buy it at the store, or this healthy veggie lentil stew.

It took me 32 years to discover how awesome parchment paper is, and what a time saver it is in the kitchen. Do yourself a solid and get some now. It made cleaning up after this turkey and quinoa meatloaf a breeze.


CRAFTING
If you're into DIYs or any sort of crafting, Mod Podge needs to be in your home. This stuff is like a "jack of all trades" in the crafting world. Glue, sealer, finisher... It's good for all of it!

These sponges are the best I've found to apply the Mod Podge, and these brushes are what I use for anything that needs a paint job, like this fall fire place hearth decor idea that's perfect for you and the kiddos.


YOGA ESSENTIALS
A good pair of yoga pants is ESSENTIAL. Can you get them at Target and discount stores? Sure, but they're crap. I was so skeptical of expensive yoga wear and then a boyfriend bought me a pair of nice yoga pants, and I was sold. In fact, I still have those yoga pants, a full eight years later. If you invest in your yoga clothes, not only will you be more comfortable, but you'll have them forever! These are the perfect length yoga pants, and are high wasited to keep everything tucked in. I wear these pants DAILY! The only thing I can promise you is that you will not regret getting yourself a pair.


A good yoga mat is also necessary. Cheap mats fall apart easily, are slippery, and don't offer the right amount of padding. This yoga mat is well made, a good thickness and provides grip even when I sweat bucket loads in a 95 degree class.


ESSENTIAL OILS 
I diffuse essential oils daily. Making my own beauty and household DIYs, as seen above and diffusing them are the two main ways I incorporate them into my daily life. I'm a HUGE proponent of buying QUALITY essential oils (not the ones you can get on Amazon or at a grocery store - please don't buy those, they're full of fillers) and am a Young Living distrubutor, but honestly, you don't need their fancy (read: expensive) diffusers. This one is pretty and works great! I keep it in my boys' nursery so they can get the benefits of oils, too.
